I dont see your point? i was making a "general" statement about some users using win 10 to connect to a remote host when they dont have admin rights.

With stunnel, have you used that before? I am wondering if this will allow me to do the tests on my nix server that i want to do.

Please read post #10

no vpn can ever be portable. it requires admin rights to install drivers regardless of OS. That is why i am looking for a tcp tunneler that runs off of usb, plays nice with both nix and windows.

instead of you guys bashing me for using windows when i have to, maybe try and help solve the problem. Yes, in the real world, users do use windows and some use nix systems.

so, back to my issue. The firewall seems to be blocking at the protocol level. that is what it was configured to do. I am now trying to test it using a portable usb software that somehow creates a tcp tunnel between the client(windows 10) and the server without the need to install a driver, thus allowing persons whom have access to said server, a way to ssh to the server to use sftp to download files.

No you are not asking general advice you are trolling a Linux forum asking for advice on a legacy OS, namely Vista10.

Yes, I have used stunnel.

Out.

i dont think you understand the definition of trolling. In fact, you answered a question that i was going to post later in a different place and i quote:

"I wish there was a usb tcp tunneling app that ran on windows. that would solve another issue haha

thanks for your help and time"

you then proceeded to help and give me much needed advice about using stunnel and corkscrew, all in which i thanked you for.. then you turn around and post

"What does Vista10 have in any way to do with GNU/Linux here?" that, my friend, is the troll. not me. So dont give answers to someone then turn around and cuss them out for it.. un-professional

My OP had NOTHING to do with windows 10, which is actually a different kernel of vista. I just made a blanket statement about users using win10 once the conversation about stunnel and corckscrew came up. i was HOPING to get some professional help here about how to solve an ongoing issue that doesnt just effect the nix users, but also the win10 users, because guess what... real networks consist of BOTH os's, not just nix based systems. But from previous posts i have read on here while searching, this forum is VERY biased and tells people to "nuke" there windows system and just use linux.

I understand this is strictly linux only, but your gonna get networks that are a mixture of both, not just one or the other...

again, thanks for the time and advice given about the other apps. I will further my search and help else where.

I wasn't bashing OP, just trying to point out that you are looking for a 100% Windows solution. I realize your far end is Linux but the specific solution you were looking for is to have a portable secure connection on a thumb drive, specifically for use with Windows clients. The thumb drive can't have an OS on it but some sort of special software, which only runs in Windows. This is a Linux forum so thus the push back on the solution. Make sense?
